Course Description: Psychosis is a debilitating and chronic condition that can manifest in non-affective disorders, such as schizophrenia, and affective disorders such as bipolar disorder or depression. A rich body of scientific studies has evidenced cognitive impairments in patients with psychosis. This has led researchers to explore whether the timing and development of global and specific cognitive impairments might reveal neurodevelopmental evidence on the diagnosis and prognosis of psychosis. This course introduces life span associations between cognitive ability and psychosis with emphasis on the dimensional nature of these processes and their impact on functional ability.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe the prevalence and features of cognitive impairment among patients with psychotic disorders.
  2. List specific cognitive impairments associated with various forms of psychosis.
  3. Summarize the covariation between cognitive deficits and severity of psychotic symptoms.
  4. Compare and contrast the developmental course of cognitive impairment between affective and non-affective psychosis disorders.

Course Outline:

  1. Read and understand Cognitive Deficits in Psychotic Disorders: A lifespan Perspective.
  2. Review the Course Description and Learning Objectives.
  3. Reflect on the neurodevelopmental aspects of cognitive impairment and how it can be assessed in patients with psychotic symptoms.
  4. Work through the post-test questions; keep in mind that answer selections should be derived from the respective article.
  5. Return to the referenced article for any missed questions and/or to better understand why treating cognitive impairments is an important step for improving the quality of life of individuals with psychosis.
